returning from his vacation overnight. and he is already on the defense over the latest details in the nsa spying scandal. >> reporter: good morning. the white house says the violation don't reflect any willful law breaking. the detail report white house aides say nsa is aggressively monitoring itself. more documents leaked about the nsa the national secure agency listening in on people's phone calls or reading their emails and failing to report their violations to the frn isa court. some members of congress find the latest leak about the nsa more troubling. senator rand paul wants to take the scandal to the highest court in the land. >> the only way to fine justice you have to hear both side. there needs to be a discussion from people who are a little bit more skeptical of the nsa in an open court, i think, before the supreme court on this program. >> reporter: the latest information comes from documents that nsa leaker edward snowden released. they detail thousands of privacy violations made by nsa. president obama denies the government is abusing the programs. congressman pete king who
the president this afternoon will directly affect the nsa spying? is he going to answer it head-on? >> i find it amusing the republicans have washed all over the front page. monica: bernard, the question here is is the nsa program being abused? using intelligence intercepts coming from the nsa to go on criminal fishing expeditions on american citizens. most americans agree with tracking terrorist. but is it being abused on this administration? >> are you coming out in favor of drug trafficking? they engage in terror acts, why not. stuart: this is why i find these interviews so unsatisfying. there's a point to be made here. the nsa material has been used to track drug traffickers, not just terrorists, drug trafficking. that information is being taken out of the context of terrorism. >> they uncovered this latest threat. i don't understand why republicans are assistant and shoving die program. stuart: this is pointless. you are a democrat, you're putting out the democrats point of view and immediately turning to republicans. i want you to answer the substantial question. nsa snoops, collect a w
of the problems with the nsa's talking points is that the nsa has, for a very long time, used word games, when it describes authorities publicly. those word games are based upon very strange and unordinary definitions the nsa assigned to some of the words that they use to defend their programs. >> in the "wall street journal's" report, the nsa does defend its practices. a spokeswoman says it's a very legal and respectful of americans' privacy. i she writes if americans communications are inadvertently collected during the process they use minimization procedures approved by the attorney general and used to protect the privacy of united states persons. you learned last week we did learn the nsa breached privacy rules and overstepped its authority thousands of times. >> new revelations. >> i wouldn't be surprised if people weren't watching us right now. >> i don't think anybody's watching. well, let's see, until sinbad gets out here who's in this building. >>> did you know a-rod was suspended by baseball for 211 games and said i'm lawyering up and by the time the appeal happens the season will b
substantials and the n.s.a. and the i.r.s. and suddenly we get this alert that something could be happening in the arab world somewhere toward western interests, and it is pro-administration. we've heard this a million times. judge, i'm with you on this. it does look like -- >>gretchen: what if something huge does happen? i think we should keep our eye on the prize. >>steve: just that they would reveal such detail. they burned a source and a method, and that's the problem. they could still say be careful if you're in these areas. but to be so specific to make it look like the administration is working overtime, look at these fantastic avenues of intel, that is troubling. >> another scandal on a lesser scale the republican national committee is threatening to blackball nbc and cnn from the republican presidential debates if the networks don't scratch their pro-hillary clinton films. i mean, what kind of sense does this make for nbc and cbs -- >>gretchen: cnn. >> thank you. to be publishing films about hillary clinton. could you imagine if fox published one about mitt romney or george w. bush
of you know is against the nsa program. nsa, health care, immigration reform, it is all on the table for members of congress. what is your message to them? greensboro, n.c., what do you think? >> i am calling about the town hall -- caller: i am calling about the town hall meeting that was played just prior to ,washington journal" coming on and it looked like a representative was playing to the fears of the people in the audience. i am sure that he knew what they were saying, but he was just giving vague information. one person stood up and said that his -- he took his son to the hospital because his son was beaten by a dog and he talked to different people at the hospital and the comment was, get rid of the federal government. instead of the representative addressing his concern, it did not make sense. like anperson, look elderly gentleman, said he was in favor shutting down the government's. does he realize that he is receiving any kind of social security benefits or medicare that that would be shut down, too? the representative did not explain it to him. republicans just look like
everything i posted and explanations. so i will talk to you very briefly about the nsa, and that is something i have been very involved with, trying to rein in the out-of-control nature of what is going on right now with our surveillance programs, and that is something that i have spent, as you have probably seen from the news, a lot of time doing over the past couple of months. what the nsa has been doing him as has been declassified now, is collecting the phone records of every single person in the united states, regardless of whether you are under suspicion of anything, so, in other seen from the news, a lot of time doing over the past couple words, the nsa has a database, and they actually collect every time you call someone. they collect the call that was made. they tell you which numbers were connected, the duration of the call, and they keep other sorts of what they call metadata on your calls. they have been doing this for quite some time, but it was recently disclosed, and the problem, of course, is they are doing it without any suspicion. it does not matter if you have a connection
it is fast and furious, whether it is benghazi, whether it is the n.s.a., you are never getting information. >>steve: some of the president's critics are saying the only reason we have heard about this particular terror threat at our embassies and diplomatic posts throughout the arab world is because in past administrations in the bush years, they never would have made such a big deal out of it. but right now the subtle message is, look, we were able to listen to this particular conversation between al-zawahiri and the guy who runs al qaeda in the arabian peninsula through the n.s.a. program so folks don't feel bad about the n.s.a. program. >> we'll wait and see what happens with this. if there is nothing that happens, we'll have to say you blew contacts, you blew sources and methods. was it to distract us from other issues. you know what makes me maddest of all? where's the media? when i was in the nixon administration, if the nixon administration had not turned over documents, you would have heard about it from every media source. they would have been screaming and crying. in this case th
: we've got scandals to talk about. the n.s.a. at the very least looking at it. then you have the i.r.s., at the very least should we find out why the person heading up that program wants to take the fifth rather than talk. you have the benghazi attacks which ended up with four americans dead and an attack that lasted for hours in which they never got any help. you would think that is a scandal or something that should be examined and we should get some answers. the fact that some people want the answers, others say it is pursuing a partisan scandal. at least if you listened to jay carney yesterday. >>alisyn: we've been listening to the president the past week who has been inserting the phrase phony scandals into many of his speeches and we've been wondering which ones is he referring to. so yesterday jay carney, his press secretary, was asked that directly. amazingly, he included benghazi, which so many pundits said clearly they can't be calling benghazi a phony scandal. four americans are dead. but in fact he did include benghazi. listen to jay carney yesterday. >> we've seen time
because of edward snowden an the nsa leaks. basically information on what we're doing to try to stop the next terrorist attack against americans. this is pretty explosive stuff. >> yeah. i mean this is increasing, the third rail of american politics, "the washington post" obtained new details about what it describes as a black budget for u.s. spy agencies. here are some of the revelations. the u.s. has spent more than half a trillion dollars on national intelligence programs following the 9/11 attacks. that number includes all 16 spy agencies. for the 2013 fiscal year alone, $52 billion was allocated for the program with the cry gettiag most at $14.7 billion as requested. according to the "washington post" despite the massive dollars spent on the programs, the agencies repain unable to provide critical information to the president on a range of national security. threats. also raising eyebrows from the report the u.s. intelligence lumps israel in with hostile foes like iran, cuba, china and russia as a key target for u.s. counter intelligence efforts. it's amazing how much money sinc
inside that building. so far, none have been build. >>> and new details this morning show the nsa surveillance reach is far deeper than we originally thought. "the wall street journal" reporting that the nsa can reach nearly 75% of all internet traffic, including phone calls. and while it's supposed to target foreigners, it sometimes retains e-mails sent among u.s. citizens. >>> new this morning, a flight attendant traine, has arrested for flying in bomb threats. he's set to plea guilty next week. he's not linked to any terrorist network. >>> three oklahoma city teenagers are in custody formally charged with the murder of a popular college baseball player. two of them ages 16-year-old and 17-year-old. police say they shot 22-year-old australian christopher lane out of boredom >>> and a michigan man is lucky to have survived this. watch that. his truck goes airborne, over the guardrail at 70 miles per hour. the driver lost control, apparently because of a medical condition. he was injured, but he is expected to make a full recovery. >>> the anchor was reading the news when her daug
